It's raining in Portland and other things that won't surprise you

It's been a while since I posted. Mostly because I've been making masks nearly continuously since I've returned from Portland. My first Halloween running my mask store has been incredibly challenging and I've learned that I have a lot to learn.

Our trip to Portland was.... wet. It rained the whole time during the H.P. Lovecraft film festival and Cthulucon. We spent a lot of time at our table selling books and masks.


While it was nice to get away from my studio, that didn't mean I wasn't working.  I was on deadline to illustrate a book called "Teens of Character, Book 2", so I had plenty of painting to do.

This is one of the illustrations from the book. I sat at the booth, painting for the first 2 days.


Mike participated in the Pickman's Apprentice Art Competition again. There were a lot of artists competing, it was quite an event.


This is Mike's finished painting.


This is Liv Rainey-Smith's print.


...And Nick Gucker with his contest winning art!

I did enjoy our trip however. It was fantastic to see old friends and spend so many days not driving.

Anyway we flew home after 3 days and I started making masks immediately when I walked in the door., as many orders came in while I was gone. This one is a special commisson I just completed  of a zombie mask...


Right now it's on it's way to New Jersey...


Have a Happy Halloween!

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
